    Brilliant. I have the same thoughts every time I encounter this oddity in a movie. Just one more good reason to be a vegetarian.

    No harm, except for death, which isn’t recorded.

    PETA”: People Eating Tasty Animals!
    We believe EVERY Animal has it’s place in Nature…usually on the plate between the mashed potatoes and the corn, and under the steak sauce!

    If any animals are harmed in the making of the movie, just eat it and it’s all good.

    If God didn’t want us to eat animals, why did he make them taste so good.

    The movie thing is because the methods they used to film, say, horses falling down, didn’t instantly kill the animals, but made them suffer long painful deaths or permanent crippling.

    Movie horses were trained to fall down. They even used special soft materials in the saddles and stirrups – usually old tires – so the horses wouldn’t be hurt when they went down. If a horse is hurt at all, he won’t do it again. If you look carefully in the scenes where a horse falls, the ground is always clear and either soft earth, sand, or leaf-covered.

    If God didn’t want us to turn into cannibals, why is he letting us multiply until we’re the only species left on earth.

    Some were trained; others were tripped – especially in the ‘early’ days, before animal cruelty in films was cracked down on.

    See http://www.avclub.com/article/yes-animals-emwereem-harmed-21-films-and-tv-shows—72051 for some examples.

    “PETA”: People Eating Tasty Animals!
    -
    Been said so much it is not even a cliche anymore. Just a bad joke. Very bad.
    -
    60% of the GHG’s produced is from industry and our vehicles.
    30% from agriculture, feeding meat animals and over nitrogenizing the soils producing dead areas in the oceans from the runoffs.
    -
    60% of that agriculture is to feed animals to slaughter for food. Very expensive and we are running out of means of supporting such an extravagance. Would be nice if we cut it back to 10%, and add the 50% to food plants for humans.
